Local architect and historian Paul Velluet will trace the development of Richmond Queen’s Road Estate, Richmond – the Richmond Parish Lands – from the building of the Parish Workhouse in 1786 funded by King George III and Queen Charlotte to the present.  He will explore the complex history behind the master-planning and redevelopment of much of the Victorian estate in the 1970s and 1980s to create London and Quadrant’s estate of social housing and the building of sheltered housing nearby, and the exemplary design of the buildings and their landscaped setting by local architects Darbourne and Darke and others.
